Unemployed young adults in Dartford interested in building confidence, getting work experience and developing important job seeking skills are encouraged to sign up for the Prince’s Trust Team programme before it’s too late.

Delivered in Dartford by charity CXK, the next programme is set to start on Tuesday 23rd April 2019, and provides an opportunity for unemployed 16-25 year olds to take part in a full-time, 12 week development programme. The programme gives them the chance to go on an action-packed trip to an outbound activity centre, develop their Maths and English skills, and build work-related skills including communication, teamwork, job searching, and leadership. They give back to their communities by volunteering, raising awareness and fundraising for causes that matter to them, and benefit from a two week work experience placement in their field of interest.

Kellie Major, Assistant Director at CXK, says: “There’s just one month left to go until the start of our Dartford programme, so any young adults from in and around the Dartford area who want take part should get in touch now!

“The programme is a brilliant way for people to find a new direction and build the skills and confidence they need to find employment, and for many it’s absolutely life changing. CXK has delivered 115 Prince’s Trust Team programmes across Kent to date, benefitting 1,100 young people. 93% of those young people progressed into employment, education or training after completing the programme.”

Team is a personal development programme which provides unemployed 16-25 year olds with the chance to take on new challenges, take a qualification, make long-lasting friendships and develop vital skills that will help them to find work. The programme is completely free of charge and doesn’t affect participants’ Jobseekers Allowance or Universal Credit. Travel costs are paid, and individuals may even be entitled to meals and bursary payments.

Kellie continued: “Spots are filling fast, but we still have a few spaces left. To register interest just email princestrustinfo@cxk.org, call our recruitment team on 07843 287787, or visit cxk.org.”
